Andy Cohen finds his match on Tinder with the help of Larry King

Sometimes you find your match when you least expect it, even on a dating device. Such was the cast for TV personality and bachelor Andy Cohen. According to Out Magazine when the “Watch What Happens Live” host stopped in for a visit with Larry King on "Larry King Now" Monday, the interview took an unexpected turn when Cohen found his match on the online dating app Tinder.

It all started when Cohen decided to give Larry King a Tinder tutorial. While explaining how the dating app worked, King inquired on whether the app was only for gay men. Cohen explained that it’s for straight people too and explained, “You basically swipe in a certain direction. And they’ll put up a gentleman from my area.”

Much to Cohen’s surprise, he seemed to have found a match while explaining how the app worked. His match was a nice looking Italian guy who King also complimented by replying, “He has a nice body” after seeing the photo. Cohen then responded excitedly, “It’s a match!”

The match goes by the name of Jon Carlos and King took all the credit. He first asked, “Something happened from this show?” Then went on to say, “ I predict that from this show one year from today I will come to New York, I will get a license to officiate at the marriage of Andy and Jon Carlos!”

Tinder was just a small part of the interview. The two also discussed the creating of the “Real Housewives” franchise and all the drama that surrounds the reality shows that were just meant to be a one-time series. They also discussed Cohen’s experience of being a gay man in late night and the state of journalism. But if Cohen indeed met his future husband, it will be one interview he will never forget.
